Lauren Hill, who was able to realize a dream by playing in a college basketball game despite a terminal cancer diagnosis, has died, the Dearborn County, Indiana, coroner confirmed Friday.

In October 2014, Mount St. Joseph University received permission from the NCAA to move up its basketball schedule two weeks to accommodate Hill’s hopes of playing. At the time, doctors told her she didn’t have very much time to live after being diagnosed the year before with a rare form of brain cancer.

She was 19 at the time.
